La Resident Phou Vao Hotel
5Our rating: Luxury
From $ContactUs
Deep in the heart of northern Laos, along the banks of the Mekong, is the old royal capital of Luang Prabang, one of the better places in Southeast Asia if you’re looking to get away from the crowds and the bright lights of the established tourist destinations. And roughly two kilometers outside of town is La Résidence Phou Vao, a French colonial classic with sweeping views of the forested mountains surrounding this photogenic town.
Hotel Details



LA RESIDENT PHOU VAO HOTEL

3 PO Box 50, Luang Prabang 84330, Laos

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Located on an idyllic Phou Vao Hill - the Hill of the Kites - affords glorious panoramic views of the golden dome of the Vat Chamsi Stupas and the sacred mountain of Mount Phou Si, La Résidence Phou Vao is an intimate tropical resort with a beguiling blend of East meets west.
  • The hotel's 34 rooms and suites all have wonderful views, either of the gardens, mountains or infinity pool. The two garden suites have separate living rooms.
  • The hotel restaurant offers superb Lao-French cuisine and is located by the pool. The spa was the first luxury spa in Luang Prabang and also has a stunning 13m fresh water infinity pool.a

OUR RECOMMENDATION 
Perfect for serenity, slightly less ideal for visiting the town of Luang Prabang. Since the hotel sits on a hill covered with frangipani and palms, you hear little but the occasional morning chanting of monks and see only glittering temples in the distance, hazy in the mist. A celebration of Luang Prabang food, a fusion cuisine mixing fresh Lao ingredients, like Mekong perch and watercress, with touches of French style.
